The New Pornographers are an eight member collective of musicians who have been together for over fifteen years. Their latest work is a strong, new album that looks back to great songwriting from the past and filters this classic pop through their contemporary, indie rock vision. The new album, Brill Bruisers, is the sixth studio effort from The New Pornographers and their first since 2010’s Together.

A.C. Newman deftly juggles his solo career with his band, The New Pornographers, but even he admits that his new album, Shut Down The Streets, might be the release that most successfully bridges both worlds. It's also his most personal album to date, and between live performances in Studio A, A.C. spoke with me about family, Woodstock, Neko Case and even honeybees.
